Thu 14th September
This week is National Boarding Week across Australia! As part of this exciting week, Townsville Grammar School is joining in with Australian Boarding Schools Australia (ABSA) in ‘Boarders Run Australia’.
ABSA is encouraging every boarder in Australia to run, walk or at least move 1 km in an effort to join together as part of one big community to run the equivalent of the Australian circumference!
Townsville Grammar contributed their kilometres on Monday afternoon, having their week start off on the right foot!
School Principal, Mr Richard Fairley, said he is looking forward to the outcome, “Our Boarders are drawn from a wide national and international demographic and are all integral to the School. In this National Boarding Week though it also reminds us that our boarders are part of a larger, national boarding community who share the common bond of living away from home in order to access the best educational opportunities available.”
This activity links the TGS boarders to the Australia-wide network of boarders and we are proud to participate and support this national event!
